Abstract

As more batch manufacstures implement celluarllr manufacturing. enhance their productivity and efficiency cell management is becoming a critical research issue. One of the must important elements of cell managemet is the decision concerning how parts should be loaded and dispatched in the cell (group scheduling) This paper describes the characteristics of an effective group scheduling system and proposes a system that encompasses those characteristics. The or purpose of the proposed system is twofold. First, the system can be used as a logical basis for developing effective scheduling procedures. Second, it serves as a framework within which to organize and discuss previous research, focusing on identifying the aspects of the problem that have not been adequately covered. The. relevant literature is broken down into three areas: Order releasing, group scheduling, and scheduling in a sequence-dependent setup environment. Special attention is given to the similarities beiween group scheduling and scheduling with sequence-dependent setup times areas. Finally, suggestions for further research arc presented.
